President’s Letter to Shareholders

Since my last letter we have been reporting on the extensive soil sample and auger drilling results spanning the nearly 1200 sq. km of our Sikasso property in Southern Mali. Tens of thousands of soil samples and thousands of metres of auger drilling have now been completed, analysed and cross referenced by our technical team, using a variety of geological tools, data and independent studies. The exciting result is that we are now ready to commence a focused bedrock drilling program on numerous, high priority targets. By the end of our first year, we will have completed the first bedrock drilling ever performed on the Sikasso Property. This work will begin after the rainy season ends in the coming weeks and once the ground has dried out enough to enable our team and contractors to safely access the first priority target areas on our Ouassada permit.

For those not familiar with the weather conditions to which I am referring, the Sikasso Property is located on the southern edge of the Sahel, or sub-Saharan belt, and is characterized by a subtropical to hot climate with dry and wet seasons. Normally, the rainy season extends from May to October, with an average rainfall of 800-1000 mm, followed by six-months of hot dry conditions. (See the graph and photos below.) Although some limited exploration activity can be conducted year-round, many roads and streams are dangerous or simply impassable during the wet season, and also for some weeks after the rains cease. By all accounts, this latest rainy season has been one of the wettest in the last ten years.

SOIL GEOCHEMICAL SURVEY IDENTIFIES NUMEROUS GOLD ANOMALIES COINCIDENT WITH CRUSTAL-SCALE FAULTS ON KOUROU PERMIT

Toronto, Ontario, October 9, 2018 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V:CVB) (Compass or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on the now completed priority shallow soil geochemical survey program over the Kourou and Tiélouléna exploration permits on its Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.

Highlights

  • Twelve discrete gold anomalies were identified on Kourou permit along strike lengths up to 5 km
  • Highest soil sample contained 1.38 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au)
  • Fourteen soil samples contained more than 0.1 g/t Au (100 ppb)
  • A total of 4,597 shallow soil samples were collected on the Kourou and Tiélouléna permits, where 689 shallow soil samples returned above the 5 parts per billion (ppb) limit of detection
  • Mineralization is coincident with deep linear structures, interpreted as faults, from a remote sensing study

 Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, commented, “We are pleased to report the results from our initial shallow soil program on Kourou, where we have identified twelve linear anomalies over the length of the permit.  Most of the anomalies correspond with interpreted faults.  This includes a 2-km anomaly associated with artisanal workings that contained up to 5.04 g/t gold from grab samples.  Again, these initial results give us confidence that we are following the right exploration plan in an area that has been shown to contain several, rich gold mines. Meanwhile, we are anxious to continue our work on these two permits once the rains abate. At the same time, we will be initiating the first bedrock drilling program on our Ouassada permit targets, which are located approximately 50 km northwest of Kourou and Tiélouléna.”

DRILLING CONTRACT SIGNED IN PREPARATION FOR TESTING THE FIRST OF 14 BEDROCK GOLD TARGETS

Toronto, Ontario, September 27, 2018 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V: CVB) (Compass or the Company) is pleased to announce that it has engaged a drilling contractor in preparation for the Company’s initial 3,500 m bedrock-drilling program on the Ouassada permit on its Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.

Highlights

  • Signed drilling contact with Target Drilling SARL for the provision of 2,500 m of air core (AC) drilling and 1,000 m of reverse circulation (RC) drilling
  • Drilling represents the first ever bedrock drilling on the 1,179 sq. km Sikasso Property
  • Initial drilling will focus on four zones on the Ouassada permit considered to be priority areas, and which contain active artisanal gold mining
  • A total of 14 drilling targets were identified on the permit using a combination of geochemistry, geophysics, remote sensing and geological mapping
  • The drilling targets average 1.2 km in length, and the expected depth to fresh bedrock is approximately 50 m

Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, commented, “I am excited at the prospect of drill testing the first of the bedrock drill targets at Ouassada that our technical team has worked diligently to select. Target Drilling has a good reputation and track record in Mali, and we eagerly anticipate seeing their drill rigs starting as soon as ground conditions permit. Artisanal miners have been finding gold in the bedrock on the Sikasso Property for at least fifteen years, but this will be the first time anyone has drill-tested it.”

COMPASS GOLD IDENTIFIES DISCRETE GOLD IN SOIL ANOMALIES COINCIDENT WITH CRUSTAL-SCALE FAULTS ON KALÉ PERMIT

Toronto, Ontario, September 17, 2018 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V: CVB) (Compass or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on the initial results from the completed shallow soil geochemical survey program over the Kalé exploration permit on its Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.
Highlights
● Four discrete anomalous gold zones were identified over a distance of 15 km on the Kalé permit
● Highest soil sample contained 127 parts per billion (ppb) gold (Au) over a permit with no known outcrops
● Gold anomalism is coincident with deep linear structures, interpreted as faults, identified in the recently completed remote sensing and geophysics studies
● 1,746 samples were collected and analyzed on the areas considered the most prospective for gold mineralization

Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, commented, “These latest shallow soil assay results from the Kalé permit provide us with more evidence of the mounting potential across much of our Sikasso property. Our focused soil sampling study over Kalé has identified four areas over a distance of 14 km that require follow-up geochemistry. Importantly, our remote sensing and geophysical studies suggest these anomalies are located on the fault zone associated with at least two other known gold deposits. When field operations begin after the rains, these will be four more areas where we look forward to conducting additional work.”

DRILLING PLANNED TO COMMENCE IN EARLY NOVEMBER TO TEST FIRST OF 14 IDENTIFIED BEDROCK TARGETS

Toronto, Ontario, July 31, 2018 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V: CVB) (Compass or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on the current geochemistry and geophysics surveys, and the planned Q4 work program on the Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.

Highlights

  • Completion of phase 1 exploration on Ouassada permit, and review of results has identified 14 targets over a distance of 12 km that warrant bedrock drilling
  • Proposed phase 2 drilling will target near-surface bedrock gold mineralization
  • Four zones containing active artisanal mining are considered priority areas; will involve six fences of drilling totaling approximately 3,500 m
  • The average length of the 14 drilling targets is 1.2 km; the longest zone is 2.45 km
  • Targets based on shallow and deep (auger) soil gold anomalism; induced polarization (IP) conductors; geological mapping; and, interpretation of high-resolution airborne magnetic geophysics

Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, commented, “This represents an exciting new chapter for the Company, as it will be the first bedrock drilling program ever executed on our 1,179 sq. km Sikasso property. We’ve achieved this pending milestone through the dedicated work of our technical team, led by Dr. Madani Diallo, which has complied the results of extensive exploration geochemistry and geophysics work to identify these first 14 bedrock drilling targets.  While we had already planned and budgeted to examine the first two targets in this second phase, we have identified still more priority targets. Now, with the additional funds raised in May, we are looking to expand our bedrock drilling to test four priority target zones in areas of current artisanal mining activity. We hope that drilling will begin in early-November when ground conditions are suitable.”
